Conference Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Wednesday, May 6th 2020, or created by us.

SecureWorld Remote Sessions is a series of daily briefings on security topics of particular relevance during times of disruptive incidents and remote working challenges. Our purpose is to help the InfoSec community stay connected, encouraged, and continuing to learn and share.

Tune in for 45 minutes to an hour—either live or on-demand—and receive 1 CPE credit in the process. For speaker and topic updates, keep an eye on the Remote Sessions lineup and check back frequently as sessions are added to the calendar. Phishing is the number one way that the bad guys infect computers with malware like ransomware. With the world at a practical standstill and in utter chaos, one thing that has not slowed down is the number of phishing attacks, and thus the number of ransomware attacks. In fact, attempts by cybercriminals to infiltrate networks has increased during these uncertain times.

It’s estimated that Google has blocked nearly 18 million COVID-19 related phishing attacks. People are less secure now, and the bad guys know it.

Join Erich Kron, Security Awareness Advocate at KnowBe4, as he discusses the latest advances in ransomware, phishing trends, and why it’s more important than ever to have a strong security culture within your organization.
